Nivera tested positive for COVID-19, Upcomer reported. At the same time, the Belgian player contracted the coronavirus a few weeks ago, but again passed a positive test upon arrival in Germany to participate in the VALORANT Champions 2021.
According to the source, Nivera has already recovered from his illness and will be able to compete in the tournament. The Belgian is expected to help Team Liquid in the championship, which kicks off tomorrow, December 1st.
Several players and team members attending VALORANT Champions 2021 were reportedly unaware of the test results when contacted for comment. The test results most likely came after the tournament's quarantine period, sources told Upcomer. Riot Games has not yet responded to the portal's request either.
Team Liquid and Nivera are preparing to compete at VALORANT Champions 2021, which will take place from December 1 to December 12 in Germany. Sixteen teams will compete for a prize pool of $ 1,000,000, of which $ 350,000 will go to the winner. The European team will meet in the same group with Sentinels, KRÜ Esports and FURIA Esports.
